    Generic Switch Panel

    Hi All

    i've read a lost of pages of this forum but seems i didn't find what i'm looking for:

    i've started to fly DCS just few weeks ago but i play with FSX from years, what i need for my "home cockpit" is a switch panel for planes with 1 to 4 motors, so with:

    master battery, fuel pumps (1 to 4), lights, generators etc.....

    actually i've some devices plus 2 old keyboards that i customized (and use with Hid Macros):



    i'm not skilled enough to buy one myself so i'm searching something finish or with just the switches with the front panel to customize.

    i know about saitek:



    but is specific for small planes (magnetos, just 1 fuel pump etc..)

    this one can be a good solution:



    but somethins are missing (fuel pumps, gen, etc..)

    also this:




    but there's not so much space to customize the front panel..

    Any suggestions?

    Re: Generic Switch Panel

    You dont need any level of skill to drill some holes and place some toggle switches or buttons in a piece of board or panel. You could use hardboard, mdf, acrylic, sign board, corrugated plastic, stiff card etc to make a panel of any size. You could use MS paint to make some simple tags or labels to stick on.

    To interface the buttons and switches to MSFS is easy using a leobodnar card, the website even tells you how to wire the interface up. Leo Bodnar, Simulator Electronics

    Please search this forum thoroughly as this is a very simple thing to do.
